Rain spoils second game of doubleheader

Game two of a doubleheader between Kansas City and St. Paul was suspended Friday night due to rain.

The game is scheduled to be resumed Saturday as part of a doubleheader (seven-inning games) at 6:05 p.m.

Kansas City starter Andy Noga retired the Saints in order in the top of the first inning. The rain began to fall before Kansas City had a chance to bat in the bottom of the first. The resulting rain delay was the second of the evening.

Ray Sadler led Kansas City to a 5-1 win in game one, going 2-for-3 with a double, a triple, an RBI and two runs scored. That would be plenty for starter Jared Messer (5-3), who allowed two runs on six hits while striking out three over 5 2/3 innings of work. Ben Hughes (4-3) took the loss.

Relief pitcher Kris Regas came in for Kansas City in the top of the seventh. As he recorded the first out of the inning, the skies opened, causing a 1 hour, 53-minute rain delay. When play resumed, Regas finished the Saints and recorded his 22nd save.

With the win in game one, Kansas City moved to 44-52 while the Saints fell to 48-48. Tickets for Saturday night are available by calling the Providence Medical Center Box Office at CommunityAmerica Ballpark at 913-328-5618.
